I suggest returning the two Opaline Gourami you initially mentioned were just acquired. That would at least help some.

hi guys, im new to this forum but i am a long time fish keeper.
i am with dmuddle 100% on this, all those charts and profiles stating which fish are compatible with others is total nonsense, every fish is different, i have 2 golden gouramis, 2 dwarf gouramis and 1 blue gourami all in the one tank along with a un countable amount of other fish and they get along perfectly. Only because two of the same kind of a fish are agressive towards one another doesnt mean the next pair are going to be aggresive, heck, i have many guppies and my betta doesnt get agro against any of them.

Im not trying to be offensive or agressive to anyone but im just saying that if his fish are doing fine, and he says that he has researched and knows what he is doing, then he knows what he is doing.

If i listed my tank right now, you guys would go crazy seeing what you have said to dmuddle.

thanks thegazzbazz. I understand what they are saying but I do believe that aggressiveness will vary between each fish as it does in all other animals.

I was going to let this pass, but dmuddle's response has brought it forward again and I can't.

Ignoring proven scientific fact--and I'm sorry, but there is scientific evidence for much of this--is not very wise. It reminds me of the link between smoking and cancer. While it is true that some people smoke and do not develop cancer, a majority of those who smoke do, and to risk your health by ignoring the probable and advising someone to go ahead and smoke, makes no sense to me.

And in the case of fish, these are living creatures who deserve better than one's experimentation. You may think the fish are fine, but they may well not be. There will be stress from inappropriate environmental conditions, and that is also scientific fact. If you care to, you can read this for a fuller explanation of how fish live:

Byron just let it go, the fish in the tanks are FINE. Just because you have 16 000 posts on the forum doesnt mean you have to tell people how THEY'RE OWN fish are behaving. If we say our fish are fine and aren't sick then thats when you need to STEP ASIDE and let people be right for once. Please just realise this.

You have missed the point, and I will not step aside when inaccurate information is being given which other less-experienced members may accept.
